Both men were conscious after the crash and were taken to the hospital, where their condition is unknown.

A nearby witness says they responded to the crash and rendered aid to the victims.

Any information on the pilot or passenger is unknown at this time.

A small, single-engine plane crashed northeast of Cheney on Saturday morning.

Witnesses said the plane appeared to be attempting a landing on a nearby runway in the vicinity of the Homeport Airport. It crashed beyond the runway, hitting a stand of trees and coming to rest on its side.

Two passengers were reportedly inside the plane when it crashed. Witnesses say they were taken away by ambulance, apparently injured.

Spokane County Sheriff spokesperson Mark Gregory said the men did not appear to have life-threatening injuries when they were taken to the hospital.

A man who identified himself as a partial owner of the plane said that it was valued at around $35,000.

The Federal Aviation Administration is expected to arrive later in the day to investigate.
